Jets' Brenden Dillon: Collects another helper

Dillon earned an assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars. The rugged defenseman produced his second consecutive game with a helper and at least five penalty minutes. In this latest contest, Dillon served a minor penalty for high-sticking and was sent to the box for five minutes after fisticuffs with Jamie Benn. Fantasy managers would prefer he stay out of the box since penalty minutes generally aren't counted like they used to be, but Dillon has still mixed in some offense for deep-league consideration.

Jets' Brenden Dillon: Slides helper Tuesday

Dillon posted an assist, two blocked shots and five PIM in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Wild. Dillon was involved in some of the fisticuffs in a rowdy first period, as he fought Jordan Greenway. The 31-year-old Dillon was able to get the last laugh, adding an assist on Nate Schmidt's empty-netter in the third period as the Jets handed the Wild their first shutout loss of the season. Dillon remains a physical presence first and foremost. He has 12 points, 37 PIM, 109 hits, 56 blocked shots and 56 shots on net in 40 contests. He'll continue to see a top-four role as long as Neal Pionk (COVID-19 protocols) is out.

Jets' Brenden Dillon: Tallies against former team

Dillon scored a goal and added two hits in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals. Dillon got the Jets on the board at 14:32 of the second period. It was likely a little sweet for the 31-year-old to get his first goal as a Jet against the Capitals, who he played for last year. The defenseman has six points, 42 shots on net, 80 hits, 37 blocked shots, 24 PIM and a plus-9 rating in 29 appearances this season, which is a bit of a step back on offense from his 19-point campaign in 2020-21.

Jets' Brenden Dillon: Sets physical tone

Dillon logged an assist, five hits and three blocked shots in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Sharks. Playing against the team he broke into the NHL with, Dillon was a noticeable presence on the ice Saturday. He earned a helper on Pierre-Luc Dubois' first-period marker for his first point in two games this year. Dillon had 19 points in 56 outings last season, easily the best scoring pace of his career, but he's much more valuable on the ice than in fantasy due to his solid defensive work.

New Jets Nate Schmidt, Brenden Dillon already 'just fit right in'

WINNIPEG -- The importance of the seven simple words Adam Lowry dispensed should not be discounted. Winnipeg Jets training camp is only six days old, but so much of what the organization hopes to accomplish this season is dependent on how a pair of off-season additions on defence are able to find their respective footing in this latest stop.
